The StoryTown 2019 programme is available now so pick up your copy from the Town Hall, the Tourist Information Centre, the Library, The Pound, Corsham Bookshop and other venues, or download a copy from the Town Council’s website, and visit StoryTown Corsham’s Facebook page for all the latest information.

Christmas is coming, so make a note to join us on Friday 6 December for Corsham’s fun and family-friendly Christmas Lights Switch On. It’s everything you’ve come to expect – great music, food and drink, fairground rides, the Christmas Market, a visit from you-know-who and his reindeer and lots more. The fun starts from 5pm in the High Street and town centre. And to get the festivities started, come and make a wish at the Wishing Tree on Saturday 30 November. We’ll be open for wishes from 10am-1pm, in the High Street, by The John Parker Gallery.
